CRUEL JACKS
SAID Jacky to mamma one day,
"Do let me take my hat,
"And go out to the fields to play
"With old black Tom the cat."

S Mamma said, "Yes, but take great care,
"The cat you know has claws;
S"You must not pull him by the hair, 4
Nor make him wet his paws."

Thought Jack, "What fun 'twill be to see
S"Old Tommy try to scratch,
"And as I'm thrice as big as he,
"I shall be quite his match."

S7i; He tied him with a piece of cord,
And took the watering pan,
Then all the water on him poured,
F And laughing, round him ran.. I


---;- ---





































And then he pulled his fur and tail,* * *
* The cat began to grow,

And Jack began to get quite pale,
And shook from head to toe.

Bigger and bigger grew the cat,
Till, thrice as big as Jack,
He seized him as he would a rat,
And scratched his face and back.

Then in his mouth he took him up,
And carried him away;
But whether on him he did sup
I really cannot say.

And all that night much worse grew she,
And when the morning sun came out, /
There was a little cherry tree ...
That in poor Mary's mouth did sprout.

Now 'mid the boughs a fairystood,
Who thus to the three children said:
SHere, Caroline and Susan good,
Come to your Sister Mary's bed.

"Obedient girls and boys may share
What cherries on these boughs may be,
" But Mary in her mouthmustbear,
Long as she lives her cherry tree --"

Poor Mary cried-her flood of tears,
But made the tree grow faster there;
When next yiru eat a pie, my dears,
OPMary a ~rytree beware!1

"What flower just behind him grows?
"A blue-bell, buttercup, or rose ? .
"To gather it I think I dare,
"And I am sure the bull won't care."
So right into the field they go,
G vntly creeping on tiptoe.........
First to bellow he began,
Then at the children fast he ran,
And tossed then up so high that soon
He left them hanging on the moon.

THE TRAGICAL END OF WILFUL TOMMY.

PAPA and mamma for a walk were gone out,
And granny sat reading her book,
When Tommy her gyandson-a ladashort and stout-
Chanced out of the window to look.

Ohgranny! it'srainingsohard, I declare!
"I should so like to go and get wet."
"No Tom! stay at home," says granny, take care
SLest more than you wish for you get,"

But Tom would not listen to granny's advice,
Nortake a great coat or umbrella;
Then out of the house he ran off in a trice,
But he'll pay for it, poor little fellow.

SAwhile he kept running, and thought it so nice
And cool to be wet to the skin;
But soon he got tired, and the rain was like ice,
SAs it fell on his nose and his chin.





























He stood shaking and quaking, and sad to relate
(As granny so truly did say),
Stout Tommy was waiting a terrible fate,-
He felt himself melting away!

Tommy tried to run home, but could not stir a peg,
Oh what is poor Tommy to do t
See his head, his straw hat, and each arm, and each leg,
How thinner and thinner they grew.

The policeman comes by at the very next minute,
But nothing.to Tommy did say;
A stick lay in a puddle, and Tommy was in it,
For Tommy had melted away.

His parents came home, they had wrapped themselves well
In coats, cloaks, capes, kerchiefs, and plaid;
But Tommy I his fate to each other they tell,
How it happened as granny had said.

MEDDLESOME MAT.
MEDDLESOME Matthew fancied he had
Eyes at his fingers' end,
Till his experience painful and sad,
Taught him his manners to mend.
Once in a box some "goodies he spied,
In his fingers, as usual, went,
Vainly to move them Meddlesome tried,
For the "goody" was Roman cement.
Then comes the mason, angry and hot,
Looking as black as thunder,
And having Matthew a prisoner got,
Threatens to saw him asunder.
Once in a jar determined to look,
Full of some grease of a bear,
Fingers the usual liberty took,
But he pulled them out covered with hair.
"Take your hands from your pockets; why where
have you been ?"
Cries dad when his fingers appeared.
" Meddling again, that is easily seen,
"Foryour fingers have each got a beard."

-p,



























A basket once came, of a curious make,
Matthew saw something was in it;
So he put in his hands just to give it a shake,
But pulled them out quick the next minute.

And look at the end of each finger-end dangles
A crab with its sharp little claws,
Which Meddlesome Matthew's ten finger-ends mangles
Oh see how he dances and roars.

Still the crabs dangle, still the crabs squeeze,
And blood at each finger-end comes;
Matthew now no more fancies he sees
With either his fingers or thumbs.

GREEDY BOB.
ALL the othef schoolboys good,
When their parents sent a cake,
Cut it a U up, as they should,
That each boy a piece might take,

Greedy Bob devoured it all,
And would not give one bit away;
So instead of growing tall
He got shorter every day.

SBob became so ill at last,
His cakes he could no longer eat,
So in a box he locked them fast,
To keep them for a future treat.

The rats and mice soon found the box,
__-____ And smelt out Bobby's sugary board,
They little cared for keys or looks,
, --- And quickly through the box they gnawed

I/!






























Now Bobby brought a cake one day, A W
Unlocked the cake box in a trice; -
No cakes he fund, but strange to say,
The box was full of rats and mice.

Then loud they squealed, as all jumped up,
SHerp's Bobby with another cae!
'AL JwP will sup,
"And a rare supper we will make !"

Bob seized his cake, the rats ran after,
And all the schoolboys followed fast,
And Bob amid their shouts of laughter,
Fell headlong in a pond at last.
